    Hey guys I am new here, and I apologize for bringing up a problem with millions of tutorials but I am yet to find one that applies to my specific case.

    So I turned my computer off last night, and attempted to turn it on this morning... Btw I am dual booting with Windows 7 64 Ultimate, and then on some partion somewhere I have Windows 7 RC. I will attempt to describe the scenario with these pictures:

    So I couldn't' embed the images properly, so here is the album:

    http://img836.imageshack.us/g/img1657q.jpg/

    The first two pictures are without the Windows 7 Disk inserted. And notice at the starup repair screen, there is no HDD detected, however at boot without the Windows 7 disk, both of my HDDs are detected.

    My system:

    Msi K9a2 Platinum
    WD 500gb @ 7500RPM (I understand my main copy of windows is installed here)
    WD raptor @ 10000RPM
    nVidia Gtx260
    850w PSW
    samsung DVD-RW drive
    Audigy sound card
    AMD ahtlon 6400+ dual core

    I also put the driver CD that came with the motherboard into my PC when I was in the windows repair screen. I attempted to search for some sort of driver, but no luck..

    I am sorry and thank you!
    Luke

    Try this. Boot from the Win7 DVD again, when you are at "System Recovery Options" select "Command Prompt" Type in bootrec /fixboot "Note the space" Reboot and remove the DVD. Post back with results.

    Hey thank you for the reply! :)

    Actually I have have attempted that already. the command prompt just says it's not a recognizable command. And I know for a fact it has been entered correctly, in fact nearly all commands I have entered do not work...

    All I get is, "xx command is not recognized as an internal or external operable program or batch file" :/

    Just launch the start up repair wizard from the Windows 7 DVD.

    If the disk is not being detected, you may have to load the SATA mass storage driver or if possible switch the SATA operation to compatibility mode temporarily in the BIOS.

    I have attempted that as well, I haven't found an option to perform that anywhere. Even after studying my MOBO manual.

    :/ thanks
